Hello! Our names are Khadidja and Natasha. We are here because we want to give a voice to a very precious someone who not only saved us but many many other people out there. Our biggest wish is to give back at least a portion of the love and support he gave us. This person is named Yoo Youngjae, one of the most talented Korean singers ever.
We really don’t have enough words to describe how amazing and loving Youngjae is. He is someone who shows fans so much love and appreciation that it makes us want to cry out of happiness, but also of sadness because he is someone who deserves so much more and life has been unfair towards him. He is not as famous as he used to be since he lost most of his fans during his lawsuit against his ex-company, the entertainment world is a jungle for everyone but things were particularly hard for this boy. He was mistreated for 7 years, he and his other ex band-mates were also not paid for years and they were purposefully not well promoted during their albums' releases because the company knew they would leave as soon as the contract ended and they wanted to ruin the boys' popularity.. He finally parted ways with his management company, and although things have been hard for him during these years he still supported and inspired us, giving us strength and the will to never give up on our dreams, he kept smiling to us despite his situation, he stayed humble and thanked us in every single chance he got. He is really passionate about music, he loves it in a way that it's not easily describable with just words. Anyway his contract finally ended and he decided to start again this year, for us. He has done so many things just to be able to meet us, without gaining anything in return. He also released an album recently and he worked on everything on his own, from producing the album, writing the lyrics, composing/arranging music to promoting his work. We can’t be more proud of him, but we also wish he had more confidence in himself. We wish he knew how grateful we are to him for staying by our side.
For these reasons and many more, we are here on behalf of our fandom to raise enough money to buy him a microphone for his birthday. We want to make it personalized so it would be more meaningful, by adding colors and also adding on it 2 words that mean the world to us. Through it, we will tell him that we will always be there for him through thick and thin and that as long as we can hear his beautiful voice and see his angelic smile, we will be happy. We want to make him as happy as he makes us, and we're here to ask for help to make that happen.
The professional microphone made by a professional Korean company costs around 3600€ (wireless microphone + customization + taxes + accessories like receiver and receiver's case and microphone's case) and our fandom is working hard to raise that amount, but we are not a fandom as big as before, we're running out of time :( If this project will be successful, we will definitely post pictures of the microphone and the transactions here! Any help would be really appreciated.
Thank you! We'll add the link to some of his performances as well as his 1st debut track as soloist!
